Internships are supervised experiential learning programs designed to broaden the student's knowledge of music, to provide the student with a more comprehensive understanding of his or her career objectives, and to build the confidence and tools needed to market themselves in their career of choice.
The OEL and the internship coordinator are available to assist qualified students in obtaining and maintaining an internship. Acting as a channel of communication between the student and employer, the internship coordinator provides internship guidance, counseling, and search information, and develop and monitor student application and evaluation procedures. Through the OEL, students have access to over one thousand contacts, both inside the metro Boston area and beyond, including New York, Nashville, or Los Angeles.
